"Folks, welcome to the Eric Metaxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacypminvestments .com. That's legacypminvestments .com. Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to listen to a man of grace, sophistication, integrity, and whimsy? Well, so are we. But until such a man shows up, please welcome Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. Hey, Chris Himes, are you there? I am. I am. Where are you? Well, I'm at home, but my background green screen is a studio in the city, so I'm both clever, tricky and deceptive of you. I am in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Michigan. I used to come to Grand Rapids a lot, but I think the last few years have been so crazy. In any event, I'm here for an event tonight at Cornerstone University, which is a wonderful Christian university. I actually did not know of it, and I was shocked once I realized how big it is, how amazing it is, how they are holding the line the way a lot of Christian universities like Wheaton are not holding the line like it's it's really encouraging when you meet some good guys. So Cornerstone University here in Grand Rapids, there's a big event tonight. It's kind of a big deal of eleven hundred people. And we're talking about the future of the church from my perspective in America, the future of the church. And and I let's see tomorrow I fly to Dallas where I have an event Christ for the Nations, a big event on Saturday night. Then I fly to San Antonio, which Texas is so big that you could not walk or take a bus. You got to get on a plane to go from Dallas to San Antonio. And then so there's a wonderful pregnancy gala event, pregnancy center gala event in San Antonio. And then I'm flying back to Dallas for the Socrates in the city stuff that's going to be at the Fort Worth Club that is totally sold out. Amazing. So a lot of stuff ahead. We are doing a fun way to cut you off, but I can't to compare you to to Taylor Swift in so many ways. You're you're like in a different town every day. And, you know, it's it's you need a tour bus and a hair cross between Taylor Swift and Johnny Appleseed and a Methodist circuit writer. But but I but seriously, it's crazy. And I I was going to say right now we are doing a fundraiser for the Alliance Defending Freedom who fight in court for your religious liberties and free speech. These are American heroes. And we've been pushing this really hard and almost no one has donated anything. And I don't know if it's because you hate me. No, Eric, it's not that it's just because the war, the Taylor Swift concert tickets are really expensive. And or is it because of that? Yeah. But I want to say, listen, if you cannot afford to give to the Alliance Defending Freedom, I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to those of you who can afford to give something, which is most of you. And I want to say that there are very few places you can give that are, you know, how do I put it? There's there's no downside here that they are battling in the courts for religious liberty and freedom of speech. I mean, I don't know if you go to Metaxas talk dot com, which I believe you're biblically obliged to do that. I don't go to Metaxas talk to come. You'll see the banner at the top. It's right at the top. But you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to have on Jack Wagner. He is one of the senior counsel, one of the one of the, you know, principal figures who is fighting for our liberties at the Alliance Defending Freedom doing so. Like for next to nothing, you know, he could make a lot of money doing other stuff. But there are a lot of heroes at the Alliance Defending Freedom. I said, let's let's get one of these guys on. So we'll have him on in a couple of seconds. And he can he can get into the weeds of of some of the great stuff they're doing. It is phenomenal. Just phenomenal. Some Kristen Wagner is the head of Alliance Defending Freedom. She's amazing. She sent out an email this morning about the Jack Phillips case. He continues to have to fight in the courts. And guess what? It's the Alliance Defending Freedom that's fighting for him. So, Eric, I was just going to mention we have a Dutch pastor who, you know, was basically imprisoned. And we people don't realize what it's like in other countries live just to your faith publicly and privately and how good we have it here. But that can change. And as and people are trying to change it. You know what we are going to maybe an hour or two today will play the interview that we did yesterday with Pastor. It's actually the Danish, not Dutch Danish Pastor Torben. His story is just amazing. It's amazing what happened to him in Denmark and then in the United States, he came here looking for religious asylum because he was being persecuted. So maybe an hour or two, we can play that story. This is real, folks. This is real. We have an opportunity to do something about it. That's exciting. I want to be real clear. The fact that we still can fight is a huge thing. But then we must fight. We must, must, must do everything we can. There's a lot we can do. One of those things is giving to the Alliance Defending Freedom. That's just one thing. But I beg you folks to go to the website, our website, MetaxasTalk .com, click on the banner. There's all kinds of stuff there. I put it on Twitter today, but it's important. So before we get to Jack Wagner, everybody's talking about the fact that Kevin McCarthy was shown the door. He was the Speaker of the House, but he was shown the door and he is no longer the Speaker of the House. This is historic. And a lot of people I what I find interesting is a lot of the the right people are really angry about it. People that I kind of thought, you know, I, I I suspected that they were not exactly where I am and where a lot of us are in the country. And and so we have them fulminating. So on Twitter, I put out a tweet that it's a Seinfeld quote. Well, it's actually reference to a Seinfeld quote. And it says what I think I said on the program yesterday when we started. The swamp was very angry last night, my friends, like an old man ordering soup at a deli. And I and I had a gift or whatever they call it, a GIF of Newt Gingrich. You know, obviously very upset.

business flash all charlie right charlie pal thank you so much as always we appreciate that we are here in our bloomberg interactive broker studio uh... at a one of the big points year have been a couple drivers is market a i and and his drug laws the weight loss drugs yeah i mean the entire economy of denmark right now is ripping because of noveau nor does with uh... was epic yeah and actually i don't fully understand i don't understand why it's happening now but me or next guest can kinda help out here george is it and c of curax pharmaceuticals uh... he joins us of via zoom uh... george your company your correct pharmaceuticals you have i guess a prescription medicine for overweight and obese patients what is that in and how is it playing in this market sure we have uh... we have contract if contrary uh... has been on the market united states is two thousand and fifteen uh... it's very different from the other products that you just mentioned it's not a g l p one it's the only oral non -dea controlled medication uh... approved by the fda for obese and overweight patients and so it's uh... it's it's it's been a been pretty exciting years you mentioned we've got uh... your searches in our business across not just united states across europe and and and and all forty eight markets that were were currently operating so something that georgia dot com and i were uh... wondering just as you were coming on here is is the obesity crisis in america getting any worse right now like why this year has it been such a breakout year for weight loss drugs and is really seem to be something that was so top of mind in the news a couple of years ago uh... you know is it is it getting any worse is it stabilizing like why now all this attention on weight loss drugs well i a few things when it was getting in a lot of attention a number of years ago and then you know the the pandemic took over as a top health care news story over the number one epidemic which is the obesity in the united states right and so now so we can be able to turn ourselves back to what we know this this particular situation obesity is not getting better uh... we're progressing as a society we have over forty three percent of our adult population that's obese projected to be almost fifty percent in the next decade uh... our children coming behind us or even more obese than we are as adults and so this is we have to intervene and obesity is kind of a special situation is it's really the only chronic disease that's reached this level without any type of uh... you know pharmaceutical device or service that's intervention that's paid for so but has an osempic been in the marketplace for while a for and there's been other diabetes uh... pharmaceutical solutions in the marketplace why are we now saying hey this this can be for weight loss wasn't that known for a while i think was known for a while sure you know osempic importantly it doesn't have the indication for weight loss it's a sister product which is the same product at a higher dose it's called obc commercials for that uh... much or no from lily is that is another another type 2 diabetes product uh... that will also be uh... under zep bound and a new name that is uh... that will be used used for for weight loss but they're essentially identical identical products uh... wheat these tools are great tools uh... the g l p ones would be able to go in and and and and set down they are they're gonna be great tools that a lot of people will uh... be able to lose a significant amount of weight on and they uh... you know we could big companies like novo and and lily in the market place they tend to do the right thing right they they tend to you know bring a great product market and put all the the products and services behind it to to help help that disease journey so tell us more about what backs offers in this space the drug that you guys have for obesity how somebody can take it what they should uh... maybe reasonably expecting in terms of the weight loss goals and what the drug can accomplish sure so we get the prize in growing you know significantly over the over the last uh... decades has been lost in the united states we acquire the product in two thousand and nineteen and we acquired it with a different lens of how of to grow the product and how to make it available to patients so that the first thing we did knowing that it was a cash only market right cities are not covered by private insurance and not covered by the government yet although makes a good progress uh... we create a program called cure access where any patient who's prescribed the product can actually access the product for ninety nine dollars have a ship directly to their home we put that in place is a bridge to help people start to fight this disease for themselves until such time that insurance and the government start covering these products as they typically would for all of

A highlight from How you can Unleash your Potential and Achieve Dreams -- Interview with Katrine Horn by Shevo Umweni
"Hi, everyone. My name is Marianne See. I'm talking to you from Portugal. Please continue listening to Chabot's wonderful podcast. He's a great, great podcast host. Hi, I'm Terry Tucker, author of Sustainable Excellence, the 10 Principles to Leading Your Uncommon and Extraordinary Life. I'd like to encourage you to reach out and listen to Vivid Vision Podcast with Chabot. He's a remarkable young man, and I think you need to spend the time to listen to what he has to say. Thank you very much. Welcome to the Vivid Vision Podcast. Thank you for tuning in and making your choice to tactical strategies to implement on your way to greatness. And now, here is your host, Chabot Umani. Hello, listeners. Welcome to Vivid Vision Podcast with Chabot Umani. Today, I'm with a wonderful guest. Her name is Katrien Hahn. She lives in Toulouse in France. So the first voice you'll be hearing would be Katrien Hahn. Hello, Katrien Hahn. Hello, Chabot. How are you? I'm doing very fine. How are you? Good morning. I'm excellent. It's a beautiful day, and I'm excited to be talking with you. Thank you very much. I read you help women especially, right? You help everybody, but your concentration is majorly young. Well, most of the people who come to me for life coaching are women, and I think that's because they identify with me and with my story. So just to fill you up on that, I haven't always lived in France. I used to live, well, I was born in Denmark, which is in Northern Europe, and I wanted to play the harp when I was little. The harp is a musical instrument and like with lots of strings on it, and I thought, oh, wow, I really want to play that. And then I got the idea, well, I want to emigrate to the UK to go to music college, and so I did. And obviously, lots of people told me, well, it's impossible. You can't audition for music college and get in. You're just fantasizing, right? But you know what? I did it. I auditioned, and I got in. So that just proved to me that I could do anything I really wanted to do. And that felt so inspiring, and that is really just how I've kept living my life, having dreams and then following them. Is that something you can recognize from your life, Cebo? Yeah, I love music too. I help women, ambitious women, who've got a dream, but they can't quite believe that it's possible for them. So they're willing to believe that it's possible for other people to achieve their dreams, but they just think that they've got something that prevents them. And that could be anything, but when we really take it apart, when we really look at what is preventing them from following their dreams, it's just thoughts that they're having about themselves, about society, about their dreams. And once we have spotlighted or highlighted those thoughts, then we can question them. And that's really how coaching works. We take a thought we've got about something. So in my case, with this story I just told you about leaving Denmark to go to music college in London, my thought about that was it might not work out, right? So for me to take action, I needed to believe that it could work out. It just could. And then I just needed to practice that thought over and over again until I thought it probably will work out. Or if I do what's necessary, if I practice my heart a lot and I play really well, then it's possible. Do you see what I mean? So I'm working on my thoughts and once I've worked on my thoughts, I can then adjust my feelings because imagine traveling to the UK, believing this is not going to work. It's not going to feel good, is it? I'm going to feel despondent, defeated, that kind of feeling. But if I travel to London believing this will probably work out perfectly because I have prepared myself well. I can play beautifully and I have practiced a lot. So this will probably be a tremendous success. I said everybody has this fear in them, but it's only those that are able to conquer their fears that are able to achieve great things. Yeah, by conquering our fears, I'm much more for feeling them deeply. So my idea is that if you really feel your fear deeply, you really feel it, you get so familiar with your fear that your nervous system will no longer be afraid of it. So it sort of gets used to the fear being there and then the fear stops interfering with what it is you want to do. Do you see what I mean? Yeah.

"The U .S. dollar has lost 85 % of its value since the 70s, when the dollar decoupled from gold, and the government seems bent on continuing the tradition. Charlie Kirk here. From now until after the elections, the government can print as much money as they want. The last time they did that, inflation went up 9%.

Really excited for our guests this hour. Lee Fang joins us, who has been doing some great reporting and honestly has a super interesting story. I want to get into his background later, though. I want to first lead with his excellent story here that is radicals versus Atlanta, the global left's violent rage over a police academy meant to prevent killings. You guys can find it at leefang .com. That's l -e -e -f -a -n -g .com. Lee, excellent piece. I want to explore this with you. Welcome to the program. Tell us about it. Hey, Charlie. Thanks for having me. You know, this piece looks at a couple different issues. You know, in America we have a crisis of police training. Police are not very... they don't have a very large training requirement, especially compared to other wealthy industrialized countries. You know, it takes a minimum of about three months to four months of training to become a police officer in many jurisdictions in the United States. Compare that to Finland, Germany, Denmark, and other countries where it takes at least three years. Stressed out cops, cops without proper training, are more likely to injure civilians and themselves, more likely to escalate violent situations. There's just so much social science, criminology, and other research that shows better trained police are better at preventing crime, are better at de -escalating and dealing with mental health emergencies, better at policing in general. Yet, despite this kind of clear fact of the matter, the new cause du jour on the far left, the radical left, is going after police training. There's a view that any type of training, any type of investment in preparing police, is some kind of violation of defund the police, abolish the police principles, that it's somehow dangerous for society. And we're seeing protests all over the country of various police training centers. But the biggest kind of rallying cry is a proposed police training center in Atlanta that will be primarily for Atlanta police, but for Georgia police overall. Police in Atlanta are, you know, they're forced to train in a very decrepit building where the roof is literally caving in. Firefighters will also use the same training center. They're using an ancient abandoned elementary school. This is something that the unions, that community leaders, that the entire city council, that community leaders have demanded for decades. Now it's finally happening. And the global left, I mean, people are flying in from France, from the UK, from Canada, to protest the center, to engage in violence, to attempt to burn it down and attack it. It's kind of the rallying cry for protesters around the world. In San Francisco, in Brooklyn, in Paris, and other places you see Stop Cop City. They've kind of branded it as a supposed cop city and made it their rallying cry. And it's kind of led to these escalating violent tensions in Atlanta that is very unusual for the city. This is a city with a long history of nonviolent civil rights protests, very kind of gradual, moderate reform. It's not known as a hotbed of radicalism, yet Antifa and anarchists from around the country are swarming to the city and in camping and attacking construction workers and police officers as they attempt to build this training center. So I have several thoughts. I think you've pinpointed the first, perfectly, which is for years, as I do these campus events, I'm told by anti -police BLM activists, the key is training, that we need to train police better, that we need to make sure they're better equipped, that they're not overwhelmed, that when they get in a situation, for example, they don't mistake their taser for their firearm, which is a situation we saw recently that ended tragically. Now, that seems to just be an excuse. That doesn't seem to be legitimate, maybe by some people it is, but this activist base is going after the actual training centers themselves. Now, our audience probably remembers, and Lee, I want you to correct me if I'm in error here, but this felt like a coordinated attack. It felt like as if there was communication channels, time, date, place, and manner to go after this construction site of well over, it seemed to be between 50 to 100 people is my estimation. Walk us through that day that went viral where these Antifa folks gathered with, I guess you could say weapons or I don't know if it was Molotov cocktails, tell us the details of when they decided to actually try to damage the training center in Georgia. Well, you know, to your first point, there's been a great division within the criminal justice reform movement. There are many well -meaning people, well -intentioned people who see police abuses, who see issues between police and civilians as an opportunity for reform, for greater investments in body cameras and civilian oversight and better training and working closer with police and violence interrupters to deal with all the kind of issues that we have in this country when it comes to crime and policing. But there's another side that's overwhelmingly kind of dominated by upper -class activists, by foundation -funded activists, by kind of highly educated left -wing anarchists, for lack of a better term, who see this opportunity, see these kind of moments of police misconduct or viral moments you see in the news around policing as an opportunity to burn it all down, to kind of confront police, to engage in rioting and violence. And that's what we've really seen with this public safety training center in Atlanta. Back in December, you had a number of activists, almost all of whom who were at least arrested were from out of state. Once you look at the arrest records in one of these confrontations where protesters brought weapons, knives, Molotov cocktails, even firearms. In one case, 27 I believe were arrested, only two were from Georgia. In another case where there's another violent confrontation, every single individual was from outside of the state. And there's sometimes kind of a cliche that any of these violent protests are outside agitators. And I think you should always view some of these claims with skepticism. The proof is right there. I mean, these violent protesters were bringing weapons into Georgia. And after this training center, the arrest records show that they don't live from the state. I mean, it's become a global rallying prize. So people are flying in. And you listen to the last city council member hearing on this training center from earlier this summer, and people at least identified themselves. They said, look, I flew in from Los Angeles. I flew in from New York. And I'm just so opposed to police training that I use my own resources and my time to come protest. It's become very fashionable. It's kind of the bandwagon effect. It's the mimetic power of the internet. When people see these kind of very emotional causes, they get so invested. And if they have the time and resources, they will literally fly to a place like Atlanta and engage in these protests. And it hasn't been a meaningful back and forth. There are claims that this is a militarization center, that this is going to be used for training alongside Israeli special forces to terrorize minorities. There's no proof of that. But you can understand if you did believe that that might be kind of a galvanizing reason to go in and protest. But there's just been such a big separation between those who are very eager to jump on a bandwagon and those who are actually dealing with the facts of the matter for this training center. How much damage did they do to the construction site? And do you think this training center will actually get to completion? Well, they've destroyed multiple bulldozers and construction materials. They went to the Alabama home of one of the construction executives and attempted to intimidate him. They just destroyed and burned several police motorcycles at the center. They've attacked AT &T workers who are setting up some of the telecom equipment. I don't think there's been a full kind of exhaustive list of all the damage they've done, but they keep attacking the workers and the police and destroying all the equipment as they come and develop the center. And will it happen? I don't know. There's a fight. There's lots of kind of far left money flowing into the city to put the issue to referendum. So there'll be a yes or no vote in Atlanta that has not qualified yet. They're still gathering signatures, but it's still TBD. There's a lot of money coming in and this is an off -year election. So for an off -year election, if it qualifies for this November, it's really for those types of elections, the most eager and enthusiastic voters can have a lot of sway. I just want everyone to just take a second here. This is is this in Fulton County, Lee? Is that correct? I think it is. Yeah, I believe so. So you have the Fulton County DA who's about to indict a former president because of a phone call and then you simultaneously have a taxpayer funded police training center of people flying in from all over the world, attacking it. Something here doesn't fit.
A highlight from Short Stuff: History of English
"But I like the short version, and we want to thank EnglishClub .com, and in particular, TheConversation .com, and a professor of lit at the University of Bristol named Ad Putter. Go fighting Abby's. Is that what it is? You got me again. But anyway, Putter wrote a really good article that helped out with this one. But we're talking about the history of the English language briefly, because I was just kind of curious, like, who were the first people to speak English? And the first English is what you have to talk about first, which is, of course, Old English, which came about right after the Romans left Britain. This is a very long time ago. They colonized Britain, but they were like, things aren't going so great in the Roman Empire, so we're going to leave. Yeah. So, it's just interesting. The Romans spoke Latin, but the Brits spoke Celtic. And then after the Romans left, because their empire was crumbling around them, the Brits still kept speaking Celtic, but not for very long, because the Romans had basically been occupying Britain, but they had also been, in turn, protecting it. But as the Roman Empire crumbled, it left Britain totally vulnerable and open to invasion, and in very short order, that's exactly what happened. Three Germanic tribes, the Angles, the Saxons, and the Jutes, all basically came down from northern Germany, Denmark area, and said, we own this place now. You guys are going to start speaking like us. Yeah. They spoke what's called North Sea Germanic, and those Celtic speakers were kind of, they ended up where they ended up, which was north and west in what we now call Ireland and Scotland and Wales. So, the Angles, which was one of those Germanic tribes, like you've ever heard Anglo -Saxon, that was because they were the Angles and the Saxons and the Jutes. Two of the three of those tribes were the Angles and the Saxons. And once they got to Britain, their language was referred to as what we would call Old English or Anglo -Saxon. And it is the original form of English, and this was used in the early Middle Ages, but this is not anything that you would recognize as English as we know it today, except for just a few words here and there. Yeah. Like, his, he, some of these really, really old words. And remember, he, they think, is possibly as old as humanity as far as words go. That was already in use. But, yeah, it didn't bear much of a resemblance. And so, Old English, Chuck, was in use, I think, from about 450 to 1100 CE. Yeah. And, you know, the original thing that got me looking for this was if they could pinpoint, like, not necessarily the people, but who the first English speakers were. But our friend, Professor Putter here, actually does name a couple of people. And this is, you know, this is sort of as legend goes. But when these Germanic tribes came through, they asked a couple of those leaders, Hengist and Horsa, to come in and help protect the country. And showed they up. They, and of course, again, this is, this is, as the story goes, we really don't know if it's true or not, but they would have been the ones that brought in this Old English. So, technically, you could say that they were maybe the first English speakers as we know it as Old English. That's so fascinating. Like, if these guys aren't legendary, they are the first English speakers in England or Britain. So, Old English stuck around until the Normans came along. So, in 1066, William the Conqueror, the head of the Normans, he was the Duke of Normandy, which is in France today, showed up in England and said, Hengist, Horsa, you guys are a few hundred years old, it's time for you to hand over the reins to me, William the Conqueror. And it just so happened, since he was from what's today part of modern France, he spoke what you would kind of recognize as a type of French. And so, the Normans brought French to England. But rather than it becoming totally widespread, it actually became part of what Professor Putter calls a linguistic class division, where the royal court in the upper classes spoke the king's French, and then the lower classes continued to speak Old English. Yeah, and what's going to happen here, of course, and as we'll see, as England got to conquering for hundreds of years, you pick up on words as you move about the earth. And in this case, a lot of French words were added to what was now known as Middle English. Do you want to hear one that I guessed was right? Yeah. Sausage. Oh, yeah. Sausage. Sausage. Let's take a break. When we come back, we'll talk about a big change that happened to Middle English pronunciation that linguists are still trying to figure out right after this. Sausage.

Dr. Peter McCullough: Three Risks Groups From COVID Vaccines

John Zmirak Unpacks Guy Ritchie's Brilliant Movie "The Covenant"
"I'm talking to John's murak hey John, how are you? I'm fine, and I've seen some wonderful movies lately. Now, one movie that I've got a column coming out today at the stream that you haven't heard about is called the covenant. Guy Ritchie's latest movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal and an absolutely amazing Iraqi actor who really steals the show and I'm looking up his name. Wait a minute. Is it Burgess Meredith? No. Mr. T now, his name is darlene, Dar Salim. He lives in Denmark, but he's from Iraq, and he plays an Afghan translator who worked with the Americans and is targeted by the Taliban with his wife and child and has to go into hiding. He was promised a Visa by the U.S. government for his dangerous work, helping American soldiers, and the government doesn't come through. Just wait a minute. A good movie called the covenant made by the Guy Ritchie, who was once married to Madonna. Yeah, I'm telling you, he has made a number of very good movies. I think he's really grown as an artist. Oh, there's no question that if you follow this that he's clearly smart conservative, whatever or something is happening to him. But Madonna will do that to you. The movie, the covenant, it shows really powerfully in a really well made movie, the betrayal of the Afghan people and our allies there by the Biden administration, which cut and run left $90 billion worth of military equipment for the Taliban, giving them the fourth largest military budget on earth. Bigger than Russia's bigger than France is bigger than Germany's.
The Last Best Hope
"The downhill slide of this country is so sad, Lincoln was right the last best hope on earth. It was the title of my book about the left and America, still the best hope. I would actually beg you to read it. It'll explain what is going on. Right now we're not the best hope. In fact, there is no best hope. To be honest. Who's the best hope today, Britain, Canada? Denmark, Australia, well, since best is a relative term, maybe we still are. We have the most active and tie left movement on earth. In the United States, so maybe we still are ironically, we may still be the last best hope.
On this week's AP Religion Roundup, Paris' iconic cathedral prepares to re-open, and ancient runes reveal the Norse god Odin's deep history.
"On this week's AP religion roundup, Paris's iconic cathedral prepares to reopen, and ancient runes revealed a Norse God Odin's deep history. French officials say the reconstruction of Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris is going fast enough to allow its reopening to visitors and faithful at the end of 2024. That's less than 6 years after a fire ravaged its roof. France's culture minister rima Abdul Malik says that they still have work to do after the visitors return. Reopening to the public in December 2024, it doesn't mean that all the renovation will be over. There will still be some renovation works going on in 2020 5, but the cathedral will be open to the public. Authorities have made the choice to rebuild the 12th century masterpiece of gothic architecture, the way it was before. That includes recreating a more recent 315 foot spire. The army general in charge of the colossal reconstruction said the iconic spire will gradually start reappearing above the monument this year. He also says that the reopening means that Notre-Dame's archbishop will restart services at the cathedral. Every day, about a thousand workers endeavored to restore everything from the stonework to the stained glass to bring back Notre-Dame. Scientists have identified the oldest known reference to the Norse God Odin on a gold disk unearthed in western Denmark in 2020, a pendant with the inscription reading he is Odin's man, was in one of the largest troves of gold treasure ever found in Denmark. It's one of the best executed runen descriptions led I have ever seen. Lisbeth Emer is a runologist with the national museum in Copenhagen. She says the runes are evidence that Odin was worshiped as early as the 5th century. At least 150 years earlier than previously thought. We have had some indications that he might have been in the conscience of people earlier, but this is the first solid evidence. Experts think the cash was buried 15th centuries ago to either hide it from enemies, or as a tribute to appease the gods. I'm Walter ratliff

Astrid Høg on the COVID Lockdowns in Denmark
"Want to talk about your country. I have reported about Denmark as for example that it no longer wanted people under 50 to be vaccinated. Is that accurate? It is because in Denmark, COVID is no longer considered a serious illness. It's like any other flu. And we don't recommend people that are not where it's not dangerous for them to become sick to get vaccinated. So what did your country do with regard to lockdowns? The lockdown was at first. It was quick and it was heavy all the schools locked down, for instance. For how long? Four. Genocide, I forget how long was it anything approaching two years? No, and it definitely now. Okay, fine. So when spring began, this started opening up schools again. But what is significant with Denmark is that we, as first country, lifted all restrictions at a pretty early stage. Which was before Christmas 2021.
Lockdowns Cause 300,000 Axcess Deaths
"In 2022, CDC researchers found that heart disease deaths increased by 4% in 2020. Representing about 5 years of lost progress in the fight against America's leading killer. Deaths from drug overdoses increase too. With the nation recording a record 108,000 overdose fatalities in 2021. That is a 15% increase from the previous all time high count in 2020. Doctor Steven henke in The Economist at the Baltimore Maryland school that is Johns Hopkins, I believe that it is that Johns Hopkins found the strict COVID protocols in early 2020 save 10,000 lives across the U.S. and Europe. He led research into the true impact of lockdowns alongside researchers from Sweden in Denmark, finding the devastating policies only reduced COVID mortality by one tenth of 1%. Doctor hanke told daily mail, the lockdown study found that lockdowns in the spring of 2020 had a negligible effect on COVID mortality.
Could Gold Really Hit $3000, As One Analyst Insists?
"I thought I might get into a few economic and political predictions as we look forward to 2023, which is now actually here upon us. And I think there's a couple of big things that are out there glaring. Certainly on the international front, I would anticipate that things are going to become more and more problematic. I mean, you look at what China is doing there with Taiwan, Taiwan now saying, okay, everybody's going to be part of this mandatory military service. We have made efforts to get some of our semiconductor business out of Taiwan, which is important. You saw of course that Intel was relocating parts of its business to Ohio. This stuff has to be done if we want to protect our intellectual property because I would think that China will not as rash as Russia is still in tune towards a kind of crisis and you're seeing this play out as well with the Biden administration now saying it does not want people from China coming in for fear of mutations in the coronavirus. 250 million people are said to have gotten the latest version of this virus there in China. And so now because China recognizes the economic complications of having these rolling lockdowns, they're starting to ease some of that and that allowance would afford many of these people to be able to travel worldwide. And that, of course, is concerning for other countries. All of this is contributing to a more antagonistic kind of relationship with China. I would expect that this year, in 2023, that will grow increasingly more antagonistic for some of the reasons I just described. The situation with Russia will continue to be a real source of conflict Vis-à-vis Ukraine and Vis-à-vis our involvement, of course, over there. From an investing perspective, all of this of course bodes well for the price of gold, which is one of the reasons why you saw a note that got a fair amount of attention this past week, predicting gold at 3000. There was a commentator in Forbes that actually said he wouldn't be surprised to see it at $4000 an ounce in 2023. Anyway, let me go back to the analyst from a bank out of Denmark that is making this prediction Ole Hansen he's saying that given what we've seen on the inflation front and the inability of central banks around the world to effectively comment down, he thinks that that's going to actually have an effect on pushing gold further and further higher.
U.S. Senate Candidate Carla Sands' Position on Immigration

"denmark" Discussed on We Travel There with Lee Huffman
"There's after concerts back in christiania or wherever they have them, and it's just probably the wildest week that you could probably come here and you weren't planning on coming here and you accidentally came that week. You would be you'd wonder if that's how it was all the time. But it is probably a must do for anybody. It's a lot more of the I'd say more electric scenes, but, you know, there's also some great festivals throughout the summer. They have scannable, they have the music schmuck fest, which is schmuck when I first heard that I was like, yeah, everyone's a schmuck as they get there, but fucking Danish means a beautiful. So the beautiful festivals. So if you definitely want to go and see the beautiful people of Denmark, they're all there during usually about the second week of August. So it's there's some amazing things. And they usually get some worldwide artists to be performing at that. They always aqua, who sang Barbie girls Danish. And so I swear that every time Barbie girl comes on the radio or in a club, people just go absolutely crazy and they usually play at one of the festivals at some point during the year. It's like the Danish national anthem for partying, right? Yes, it is. Basically if you put on, and they seem to love anything Backstreet Boys. So I'm like, really? There's some things. I don't know. It's like I can't explain it. Right on. All right, so if people are flying there, like I know when I flew, we had to stop off someplace in Europe on the long our way to Copenhagen. Are there direct flights in the U.S.? And obviously I would assume that's like the one major airport there. But the direct flights from the U.S. should we have to take a stop in place or there's certain airlines that you recommend flying to Copenhagen? Absolutely. And you know, back in the day, and I say, you know, a couple of years ago when Norwegian airlines was really operating at full capacity. It was perfect. They had directs from Copenhagen to New York to Denver to you name it. That's obviously been cut back a little bit. And but, you know, obviously, SAS is kind of the Scandinavian airlines over here that has a lot of direct flights. They have you can get Copenhagen to New York quite easily, a lot of the hotspots are actually just had booked a flight to a director Copenhagen to Chicago, which I wasn't expecting that to be. But that was on SAS as well. And you know, kind of a little trick of the trade. There's so many great discount airlines over here if you can't. If it's going to cost quite a bit, it's easy to just take a puddle jumper over to Munich or to Frankfurt or even London and take something direct from there. Because it's really only an hour flight or so from those. So it's sometimes worth it and it's easier on the pocket. An easyJet or Ryanair flight. That sounds really good. Okay, so say we land there at the airport. And then from there, getting into the city, do we rent a car? Is there a public transportation or should we take Uber? What's the best way to get from the airport to the town? The train station. The train there is so efficient, it takes maybe about 15 minutes, max and a few bucks or crona as you would hear, but everything is cashless. So you can use your credit card everywhere. You really don't even need any krona. I mean, you can operate a 100% without ever taking out any money. Since everything is pretty much, you know, they don't always take American Express, but anything else Visa Mastercard they're pretty good about. But definitely it takes you right into the city center. If you want to just get off there, it also connects as well to the subway system they have here, which they constantly are expanding. It's super clean. It's easy, efficient. It's so easy. And then once you get here, you can easily get those taxis. They actually used to have Uber here and they no longer do because it didn't meet Danish safety standards, which is really kind of crazy. So they have their own versions of that, whether it's taxa, they have an app in which you can basically same kind of process. And it works for American numbers or four numbers or four credit cards. So it definitely makes it easy to get here and get around. And then probably other thing as you do not need a car. You can bike everywhere. And that is the most common way to get around. I mean, even you can walk everywhere very easily here. But there are bicycles, most of the hotels actually provide bicycles. Don't even need to rent one, all the hotels, you basically will just give you a key for the day and you can cruise around. There's also donkey republic. They're kind of like the Uber for bicycles here. So you can just jump on one that's nearby and had to where you need to go and leave it there. So there's some really great options. There's even, you know, you really need to rent a car. There's the same kind of apps as there are in the U.S. where you can just get them for the day. So, I mean, if you really need something to write a car in, but for the most part, you can get there by train, you can get around. There's also a really crazy app called we go. I know that sounds nuts, but basically if you need a trip somewhere that someone else is going in that direction, the deans are so trusting that you basically can just bid to say, if you're going to vegetable or wherever they're going and they're going the same direction, those pick you up and you pay him a little bit. So it's very easy to get around here. But I will warn you, you have to follow the bike lane rules. That is probably the number one thing and the biggest thing I see foreigners making a mistake. They're so used to just cruising on their bikes. And in their little towns or even their cities, it is no joke here. It is no different than operating a car you line up. You know, I have a photo as well of like just all these bikes, like the rush hour traffic. 40 bikes, it'll light. And they're all back to back to back to back. Nobody crushes together. They all wait, even if there's no traffic coming, everyone patiently waits until it turns green. It's just like the very Danish way to do things. You know, that there is no reason to rock the boat. Wild and crazy as they get their very, very, by the book on something. So definitely make sure that you learn your hand signals and properly stay in line. I definitely got flagged for that the first. I basically had to go back to bike training school for my new driver's license here. Oh, that's awesome. That's awesome. All right, so we're talking about giving around the town and everything else. What part of town should we book or a hotel or air-b-n-b or wherever we're staying? And are there any areas maybe we should stay away from? Well, all of Denmark is incredibly safe. For the most part, you're pretty central. I mean, obviously it's called centro, that's where everything still got all the main shopping. And where you'd see kind of the big sightseeing things like the prison and everything to go see, but I'd say, you know, that or vegetable, they're pretty near each other. Nobel is another area just right on the other side of the lakes that you can just get over a quick bridge to get into central. So Copenhagen is kind of interesting, but it has an area called Fredericksburg. And Fredericksburg is technically its own wenis ality inside of Copenhagen. So it is a beautiful, a little more relaxed, you know, maybe not as touristic, but definitely worth a stay out there. At least to go visit the Fredericksburg gardens, which is just a amazing gardens like you would have never imagined. So it's definitely worth it to take the bike out there and you can get out there very quickly from central in ten, 15 minutes. So everything's super close here. You know, I'd say definitely kind of stay near the lakes or kind of the surrounding area. If you get anything kind of too far out, it's just easier to walk everywhere or have your bike, so that would be my suggestions. That sounds good. I guess there is one part of town that.

"When I'm listening to someone. I'm already thinking of something else to ask them or have robots or whatever. And I try as much to stay present and open and just listen. Just being there to learn about someone else to learn about their perspective of life. Until learn about me. Because I can learn about myself through listening to others. I can grow my listen to others. If I hadn't done that, I would have been stuck where I was when I was a little kid. But because I've been fortunate enough to meet a lot of people from a lot of different backgrounds. I opened my mind. I started studying different traditions and different practices from different cultures. That enable me to grow in wealth that if I would have stayed in my comfort zone that wouldn't have happened. It's one of the things that made me want to travel and live around the world. To be able to find different people than me. And to be able to listen to their stories. And it's incredible I remember one time listening to someone that was telling me that I think that was Denmark, but I'm not completely sure. That they have libraries where you can sense rent out or take out and stuff in the book, the person. Because we all have beautiful stories. Some of them really hard and challenging, and some of them are not as much. But still with a whole have something beautiful to share. And if we just take the time to listen, how much rich our experience would be. So encourage you to meet someone that wants to grow by understanding others by listening to others, especially those that are different, but even those that seem to be quite similar. When we listen to them, you might be able to understand that you didn't really know what they were going through. And it is really interesting as well. When we are able to listen to others. That what we're doing for them is something as well incredible. When we are able to give our presence and fully be there for someone without judging, just completely open. Just listen being there for themselves. That can be really healing. Your presence can be medicine for that person. It can be one of the best things that you can do for them. And there are times. When I listen to someone. I am half willing to fix them or to tell them how you try this or how you tried that. And sometimes the best thing that I can do is actually not say anything. It's just listen. Just being able to be there for them. Because I believe that we are already have the answers. The answers are within. And yes, some of us come and learn how to do that how to go in to find the answers. But when we create space, we might be able to find them. So when someone is sharing and I create space, just by being in there and actually listening, they might be able to get to the root of things. They might be able to find the way to acknowledge something and to heal some things. This is why there are times therapy. It's so powerful. Because sometimes just by listening, we are enabling someone. To find their own answers. So I wanted to share this because I'm being privileged enough to be able to do this. To be able to learn not only that, this is really important, but to be able to go through life and listen to a lot of other people. Through this podcast, they have been named listen to so many different people. Sharing their stories. Sharing their values sharing what makes them get out of bed and be their best selves. And yes, everybody still working everybody still doing the best that they come where they are now. But it's so beautiful to listen to all of that. And to be able to listen to all these different perspectives. So that's the same. Listening can be really powerful. And I invite you to do that. Until the next time. I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day. That's your level to be open. To reach out to someone to listen to learn the world. What would you like the most about this episode?

"We won all games from there besides one. I think i believe so. We pretty much every game from that point on Which was lucky because the be group is so tough like the teams. There are really good. I was impressed with the level. Actually i don't think there's a ton of difference between the group and b group actually. Of course the top teams like niclas sanda. The scottish teams bruce and ross patterson the swiss teams Also very very good so those top teams are in the top of the group. But besides from that. I think the group and the beat group quite similar. I think you guys proved that you guys proved that the very next year when you went to the group in wound up in the semifinals. Right right I think. I think a group. That was my. That was my own team. I went to the group with for the first time. The secret bore my own team as well but a group with my own team. I was third by skip. And i think we played very well but it also helped us a lot that we were the underdogs. Pretty much for the yeah. I think that helps My team a lot Because nobody expected us to be able to play at that level. And i think we played the replayed our best at the right moments. So for example beating italy lee was tremendous for the results beating scotland as well with a big thing that helped us a lot as well and i think we were really proud of our performance at that age group. How good is How does curling kind of fit in the sports. Landscape there in in denmark. I'm guessing obviously you guys are really good at handball. In then i'm guessing like europe. I'm guessing soccer is probably the number one sport there but then how does curling fit into the sports landscape there. How low can you go out. No i think everybody in denmark we don't look at curling a sport and most people think it's not you don't have to be in good shape to play which is not true. I think Replaced very low. Like everybody thinks it's fun that you play curling it's interesting They know it's a tough game to play. But they don't think it's very physical. But which do it. I feel like it's Turning more and more into a very physical game like looking at brandon botches team for example. Like the amount of shots they make because those two sweepers is amazing. So i think more and more you have to have barely powerful sweepers to make it on the top level and not so much looking at the like the skill level of the of the players. It has to be high but even more so you have to have to strong guys on the front end sweeping for you so i think it's very physical and in denmark. Everybody thinks it's not a physical game at all. It's just a. They basically think you put on some ice skates and then go such sweep the floor like they always the same joke. Could you sweet my floors as well. Milk is that perception. Basically what you guys have to overcome to make the sport grow. Even we're in denmark. Yeah i think so. That's like that's why it's tough getting sponsors and stuff like that..

"So i had a coaches from the get-go I started playing. I had the we had coaches once a week. At least and then when i started playing with my my junior team back in the day. Which is the same team. I went to the world championships with the junior world championships. We had a coach from defer. They want us well and he kept with us until we he thought he couldn't teach us anymore Yes so the local klopp here. They're very good at bringing in new players. And i think most of the clubs in denmark art because we're interested in getting more place into the sport. What are some of the things that they do. Well that you think brings in new players I think at the social aspect of the club's demarcus in denmark curling a very social sport We have i think all the clubs in denmark have their own club level for fun tournament with some cash money prizes for the top teams but a lot of players. Just come to play these for the fun of it And i think that's the main reason that a curling good demarcus. It's very social year. It's not escort us. A competitive as it is in for example canada. Where you only see the top teams. You never see like the the low level curlers until they get to that top level so your team so do you must also play on tour. So have you. What's your been able to do this season in terms of events right. So because lockdown we only played one international tournament this year we played in a the massless which was one of the first tournaments on the tour. I think it might actually be the first one on demand side on the world curling. Who are which was the only chairman. We've played this demark lockdown. And i think our like my team we were hesitant to go. Travel 'cause we didn't want to get infected so also money is a problem. Three of us are students so getting the money for travelling is tough So only one tournament sadly had a few others in mind but they were cancelled because of covid so sadly only one time in for us that we played a few local tournaments.

"Is there any for the for the danish championships and not necessarily the qualifier. Is there any like prize money or anything else other than just being able to call yourself the danish champion Involved involved in that tournament. No o'brien money at all. Not for any of them. So european qualifier gem shift. Things that roll qualify. There's no money involved. It's basically you get some funding for going but some of the money might come from your own pocket like for example europeans. You're being janjic. We will lucky. It's very close so we didn't have to pay a lot of money for transportation the last time we had to dry for twenty minutes and everywhere there so Event that will unlock the last time but mostly The association has the money to pay for transportation and like the state during the time. They're so hotel but other than that. We get some food money but for a week. It's on the low side because we don't have a lot of money. So if you guys noticed liquor. There are a lot fewer teams that sign up for that danish championship. That there's not that that reward of getting to possibly go to euros. No i think actually more teams are signing up for the danish championships because it's nightly. Yeah 'cause now it's not it's not a serious like s serious tournament like like you would play your heart out to win this anymore. Is just danes championships. so it's I think more teams are compelled to just complacent curling and not just like at least try to like play. Best see if you can get a medal if not. It's not the end of the world as your team. Interim yes we do most of the top level teams play it. Because it's it's fun and you get to talk to a lot of people from across denmark that you don't see on a regular basis so because right now most of the teams are from copenhagen. Just one team are playing at our local club. So it's only a men's team that play another club than us Yeah so it's nice to see people and play some good curling if possible if you hit the and the yeah. So it's a it's more of a a costa tournament but still serious. It's not like one of the club level tournaments by the it's more fun so than world championship qualifier for example. How how unique you like how. How many other players like within those the two elite men's teams to elite women's teams. How many how many players are like you. That are really first-generation curlers that were necessarily born into the sport. Wow that's a good question. I think i think maybe two thirds of the players in denmark are not born into the sport. Okay i think the rest is possibly born into the sports. Some way or another. I think around there was it. Was it easy for you to get access to to practice ice to to get better when you first started or did you have to drive a long way to to get to the rank. How is that right so. I'm very lucky. i live in. A suburb of copenhagen and copenhagen has three up the club. With which have their own sheets vice. So it's not ice hockey ice. Getting transferred into curling is once a week which it is at some of the clubs but three cups year has As their own sheets. And i live at the moment. I live three point five kilometers away from the rink and i usually two point five kilometers away from the wing ring so it would take me like ten minutes to get to the ring on a bike and i could play as much as one basically There the club the local club half year. They're br very good at bringing in new players. Juniors and grown-ups for that sake..

"A lot I think changed my perspective of the of how you should treat one another like changed me in a. You have to be a gentleman. So it's gentlemen sport and you have to act like that every day of your life and not just on ice you have to be respectful of your Your the human beings around you. And i think a curling A good job in teaching that to young people because that might have a problem in my young years. You're various southcenter than i think. Curling helps you develop a with team spirit within yourself and not just for curling like but your life in general how did you first get started playing the sport. Yeah so normally in denmark that most top level curlers they were born into the sport so their mom. Dad used to play. But not me. I think i was making like twelve thirteen years of age during holidays sweden and then i watched the olympics and saw an. I thought i gotta try. That saw two weeks after coming home from holiday like the local club. Padova had like try curling because of the olympics So when there started playing couple of weeks and then a team came and asked me. Do wanna play with us at the junior danish championships on like shirt. No problem so. I played lead after only two months of play in curling at the danish junior championship and won a bronze medal. And this is funny. Actually and caught two three three and a half years later won the danish championship. Play the junior world championships in two thousand eleven. So is that what kind of i is that. What got you hooked on. The sport was just that early success. Or was there like a social aspect of it or anything else that kinda hooked to you to stay with sport For sure was a lot about the social aspect of sport I've i've gotten so many good friends..

"Only primarily focused on one men's team and one women's team got all the support. They got everything all the attention but afterwards after rasmi after he He he he retired. I feel bad saying retired. When he's thirty but still after he retired from from curling we have had a lot of 'em bauge discussions workshops. On how could we make sure that the best players in denmark going to play together going to train together be better and and not just one team because of course. It's quite vulnerable if you only have one team because when when in restless. When he's he retired. Who was there to take over for him. We had a lot of players but they needed to find each other then needed to to see the new future that they could actually become the new national team so we have created a new bacall it elite center for all the best players. They have a national coach. They have dedicated training hours I don't remember how many but they do have a lot of practice. Time in different clubs where. We make sure that the ice is good that it's actually the f. a competitive petition level. So they train on some very good is and and and then we have decided to only send people who are a member of this elite center. They are the only ones who are going to represent denmark. I think it's it's too early to say it. But i think it will be the best danish curling In the times to come because in my opinion we shouldn't be being the c pool then the a pool and then going down to be then up to a and then down again to see. That's not how it should be. We should always be the pool if you ask me of course so. We interviewed mods and kind of kind of hinted at this before earlier as well as a very interesting high-performance models. The first time. I've heard of this is that he said that People if they want to be part of the elite program they actually have to pay join in elites pacific curling club. They said it wasn't like exclusive. He said as long as someone was kind of like a good level was demonstrating the commitment they could join. And then you then card me. If i'm wrong about this but then you only invite certain number of teams for the for the world championship qualifier. A separate danish championship. That's open to anybody is that is that correct Yes yes it is it is. We decided to everybody can participate in this in the in this elite structure elite center as i mentioned before But but still the.

"This is say we took this example and said okay we need to recruit people that are almost the same age as the members we already have to grow the sport and when we grow we get the economy to do a lot of different initiatives to get younger people into the club's not only focusing on the young people that we would really like to have but we need to focus on a broader scale to get more members to strengthen the the curling association overall and then we can of course if you get a lot of new members than you get a lot of of public publicity. Get a lot of people playing curling and well then well one thing leads to another and and people start to curl because i know somebody who does and then the young people they will come. I'm sure of that but focusing only there well. I think that has been a mistake. So what are the greatest challenges facing growing the game in denmark. We waited admired. He said the. There's a perception in denmark. And i think a lot of places that curling isn't the most physically demanding sport and it's a bit looked down onto certain extent but you've also said that you have a bit of prestige from your kind of olympic success. So what is the federation done to address these kinds of challenges. Yup i think mass is absolutely right. I can hear it myself. Sometimes when i'm meet people new people say i curl well. Then they look a bit skeptical. Edmonds say well is that actually is that really a sport is that is that really something that you want to tell people that you do and and of course. I think it's the same here that we have not been good enough to actually tell what is curling to tell. How demanding is it. Actually we can see when when the club when clubs host guest events when everyday a people who just heard about curling they decide to to come with their friends and family and say okay..

"Brian both find danish curling. really fascinating. because it's it's done quite kind of quite well for the size of its federation it Do you normally tend to qualify for the olympics and obviously not every time in every discipline but there's normally a danish team in the olympics. You won your women's team won the first silver medal back in nineteen ninety eight but there's also times. Danish curling has fallen down to the sea pool in european curling as well so obviously this interesting story there about a kind of a small country. That kind of can do very well.

And i remember at the time the announcers in canada denmark did not have any curling rinks. I'm not sure if that was true. certainly it's rinks now but so keita's tells the history of curling rinks in denmark than yes. I think it's actually true. At that point we did not have curling rinks then everybody a all curling clubs. They had to show the ice with ice hockey. Lord escaped skaters and well for everybody who has played on ice hockey ice. They know it's not the same as playing an educated curling ice rink so so afterwards actually We have had full curling rinks dedicated curling rinks in denmark and and actually going to have another one in the end of this year. We are going to have another one in in the central copenhagen central denmark in olson..
